“We are absolute snobs when it comes to camping. If we pull 50 feet in and it’s not clean, we’ll turn around. Country Acres is one of the nicest campgrounds we’ve ever been to. We usually come for two weeks in July and October. We’re always here for Thanksgiving and the Fourth of July, when we have a good-sized cookout. We’re always here opening weekend and usually four or five days in August and September. It just feels like our second home.”
— Tom & Jeanne Roberson, Glassboro, NJ
